Thursday’s Special: Time (response to guest challenge)

One of the three sundials in Zagreb can be found in the oldest street in the city, Tkalčićeva. It’s summer, early in the morning, a week day, and many of the residents have fled the town to enjoy their holidays at the coast.

The place looks still and strangely empty, as if frozen in time.

In a Rush, Mr Walker?

As Paula’s guest blogger this Thursday, I’m challenging you to show us a snippet of time. Time is one of the most valuable things we possess, and certainly one I never have enough of.

As I rushed through Stockholm to catch a train to the airport, this seven metre tall statue and its equally striking statue made me pause and smile; if I had a tartan coat and a fedora, this could be me!

Who is Mr Walker, 2014, Jan Håfström

The area around Stockholm Central Station is a nightmare for pedestrians, with a spaghetti of roads turning the walking route to the station into a seemingly insoluble puzzle.  So this fun statue in an otherwise uninspiring garden is a welcome sight.

It is the work of Swedish artist, Jan Håfström, member of the Academy of Arts since 1978. winner of a number of awards and Sweden’s representative at the Venice Biennale four times.

This 2014 work is of simple construction.  Four pieces of aluminium, each placed at right angles to its neighbour, gives a sense of movement and urgency.  Looked at from one angle the man seems to jump towards you whilst, from the side, he has no time to waste as he rushes towards the station.
